This is NDI's 1st Generation model, based on the ACR and Ares Shrike in 7.62 NATO. This is far from finished, the mag release needs worked out, the upper reciever is awful, rails need done, the bolt carrier is too large, still lots to do. Plus all the modular versions.

Depending on how it operates, the bolt carrier is also the wrong design. There's no need to go for stronger/stiffer springs or off bore axis springs if you're not going to have a folding stock (and with the design of the stock itself, it doesn't lend itself to folding - the cheek pieces make it way too wide). Better to use an AR pattern bolt carrier and utilize the receiver extension (aka "buffer tube", the tube that supports the stock) for a recoil/buffer spring and recoil buffer.

I did design it to accept a folding stock, it's just not standard issue. The problem is that I stole the ACR's internals, and that gun is alot taller then I realised. I also misinterpreted how the charging handle works.

I think it looks very nice, only I think the mag release catch should be a tad longer, maybe at least finger width.
